Athletic Bilbao striker Aritz Aduriz sent his side ahead on Saturday with a one-step penalty usually only seen in five-a-side football.
After stepping up to take the spot kick on the stroke of half time, the 37-year-old lunged back and swiftly swung his foot at the ball, landing it neatly in the bottom right corner.

How about this penalty from Aritz Aduriz?!
A one-step run up was all he needed to put Athletic Bilbao in front... 😎 pic.twitter.com/TrhDZo3UEu
Speaking after the game, Aduriz said: “You have to try to surprise and I tried that with the goal.”
The audacious effort against Real Valladolid will have given Bilbao a boost as they attempt to claw their way out of a relegation battle.
Unfortunately for them it was enough to seal a win – Oscar Plano ruining their hopes of a much-needed three points with a leveller in stoppage time.
Aduriz is no stranger to a cheeky penalty – earlier in the season he scored a last-minute “Panenka” chip to seal victory over Girona.
